goby caves

I built two "tunnels" for my future goby(s) to reside in. do you think they will take to them? I think they look pretty cool

I think if they find them they'll be like "GOSH! So glad i don't have to build ANOTHER cave!"

i say another couple days, maybe try a PWC and re-test

test results!

ammonia-.05
nitrite-.03-.05
nitrate-15
ph-7.9

Yay! cycle is basically done. after i add my two powerheads(should be arriving today) and do a 20% water change, I will be adding my first fish.

I was thinking of a two spot goby, I lovee them. will he do okay? id like a goby that will house my "tube burrows" i made(look a few posts back). Also will a clown goby and him be okay? my GF wants a clown goby. they are different colors and shape so they should be fine right? i heard clown gobys dont burrow, what a shame :/, really wanted to use both of the tube burrows i made.

yes I know this but after my waterchange, it will definitely be at zero. the ammonia only went from .05 to zero because of the addition of my CUC im sure

Cycle isn't done until both are reading zero. Earlier today, both ammonia and nitrite were at .5. Now you say they are at zero because of a cleanup crew added on the same day????

Don't rush it. Let them get to zero on their own.
